Dallas Lutheran is a woderful small Diamond in the rough, It does not look like much from the outside,in fact it looks a little shabby. But I challenge you to let your child visit for a day meet the kids and the caring teachers and you will be sold. If what you are looking for is a good christian school that believes in educating the whole child.Check out DLS. The middle school prepares them for high school and one look at the wall of college acceptances and you will realize they have been well prepared for college. If you want a big school this is not for you ,but if your looking for small this is the place !!!

Dallas Lutheran is definitely a great school for anyone. They have great teachers and have extra curricular activities for everyone, ranging from the football team to spanish and aviation clubs. If you were wanting to try and put your kid into a private school, I would strongly recommend that you look at Dallas Lutheran School.

Dallas Lutheran has many assets and made junior high a good experience for my son. In my perception, the staff is remarkable in their dedication, but seriously overworked this last year. This school has a very strong study skills program for entering 7th graders and a truly impressive community service program (Beyond my Front Door) for the entire school.

Both of our children graduated from Dallas Lutheran School. Not only were they were well prepared for college, they were well prepared for the Christian life. Both were able to excel in sports and in fine arts. The teachers at Dallas Lutheran School truly care about their students. It is a Christ-centered school and that was the main reason that we chose it for our children.

When you have a child that says 'I love middle school', you know something very right is going on! Dallas Lutheran has made that usually rotten move from elementary to junior high as smooth as silk. My daughter is being challenged academically, but not buried under busy work. There's plenty to be involved in extracurricularly, and beneath it all is a solid, moral base that is so vital in the entitled world we live in. Their 'Beyond My Front Door' program has been life changing for these students as they go out quarterly to different agencies such as retirement homes, day care and school facilities, and other non profits to help out in any way needed. From building wheelchair ramps to helping in an Alzheimer's unit, this program is amazing. For a great 7th - 12th grade private Christian school education, don't miss Dallas Lutheran.

Dallas Lutheran is an excellent school. My two children love going there everyday. They offer a wonderful Christian environment with strong academics. There's an emphasis on community service and excellent college prep. You'll find the staff and faculty responsive to you and your child's needs. It's been a great school for my family.

My daughter loves it! This is such a great school. The curriculum and academics are really strong, but there is a great emphasis on fine arts as well. They also have plenty of extracurricular activities. I highly recommend that prospective parents visit the school while it's in session. What a positive experience!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
